Top 10 Tips to save energy and money:
Close shades and drapes during the day to help keep heat out in summer.
Change HVAC air filters monthly.
Plug electronic devises such as cable boxes, printers and TVs into power strips to turn off during vacation or long periods without use.
Keep your garage door down. A warmer garage in the winter and cooler garage in the summer will save energy.
Use dishwasher's air-dry cycle instead of the heat-dry cycle to dry dishes.
Set water heater temperature no higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
Ensure refrigerator door seals are tight.
Make sure dryer vent hose is not kinked or clogged.
Outside your home, calk around all penetrations including telephone, electrical, cable, gas, water spigots, windows, dryer vents, etc.
Replace any light bulb, especially ones that are on more than one hour per day, with a light-emitting diode (LED) bulb.
